Character Posters for Gavin OConnors WARRIOR March 10, 2011 First posters for the Mixed Martial Arts drama starring Tom Hardy and Joel Edgerton. Two brothers face the fight of a lifetime – and the wreckage of their broken family – within the brutal, high-stakes world of Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) fighting in Gavin O’Connor’s action/drama, ‘Warrior.’ An ex-Marine haunted by a tragic past, Tommy Conlon (Tom Hardy) returns to his hometown of Pittsburgh and enlists his father (Nick Nolte), a recovered alcoholic and his former coach, to train him for an MMA tournament awarding the biggest purse in the history of the sport. As Tommy blazes a violent path towards the title prize, his brother, Brendan (Joel Edgerton), a former MMA fighter unable to make ends meet as a public school teacher, returns to the amateur ring to provide for his family. Even though years have passed, recriminations and past betrayals keep Brendan bitterly estranged from both Tommy and his father. But when Brendan’s unlikely rise as an underdog sets him on a collision course with Tommy, the two brothers must finally confront the forces that tore them apart, all the while waging the most intense, winner-takes-all battle of their lives. O’Connor (‘Pride and Glory’) directs from a screenplay by Cliff Dorfman & Anthony Tambakis. Posters temporarily removed by request. Warrior is currently set to arrive in Irish cinemas October 7th.
